Demolition is continuing at 1841 and 1845 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where a 24-story mixed-use building is planned to rise. Scaffolding and black netting completely shroud 1841 Broadway, and it appears that the neighboring structure at 1845 Broadway has been partially razed. Both properties are owned by Global Holdings Management Group and Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record on demolition permits, which were filed late last year.
Construction has passed the halfway mark on 2505 Broadway, a 19-story residential development on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by ODA Architecture LPC and developed by Tomer Yogev of Adam America Real Estate, the 210-foot-tall structure will yield 44 units. The land was purchased for $50 million by MSD Partners in September 2018 and required the demolition of two low-rise buildings before excavation could commence the following year.
Renovation work is progressing at The Hive, a two-building complex along Eighth Avenue between West 42nd Street and West 43rd Street in Midtown. Hive 42, the taller structure, occupies an L-shaped plot at 303 West 42nd Street and stands 13 stories tall. Directly to the north is Hive 43, a six-story industrial building at 300 West 43rd Street. Both have been in the process of being transformed into a new mixed-use development with offices and ground-floor retail space. The project is being designed by Gertler & Wente Architects, developed by KRW Realty Advisors, and managed by Hive Management LLC.
Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 2902 Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Located on the Sheepshead Bay waterfront between East 29th Street and Webers Court, the through lot is closest to the Sheepshead Bay subway station, serviced by the B and Q trains. Alexander Levin under the Emmons Project LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
At the beginning of this year, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a major redevelopment initiative for the area surrounding New York City’s Pennsylvania Station. Referred to as the “Empire State Complex,” the project team is now completing a final scope of work, which will take into consideration the many comments received from community activists, experts, and officials since a scoping meeting on July 20, 2020.
